Hi guys, ever since I JB' my iPhone 4 with greenpois0n my App Square icons have all become perfect squares instead of having their corners rounded. Is anyone having the same issue. I tried searching all over the net, but so far no luck. Apple stock icons as well as Cydia icons look normal, slightly rounded.

I hope that I'm making sense in trying to describe the issue, and if not I'll try to post screen shots tomorrow.

Thank you,

I did not make these ones, I only made changed some of the Apple Stock Ones. For example, I just downloaded Google Translator and the icon is a perfect square.

John, I'll post it later tonight or in the morning.

I do not mean to hack my own thread, but how do you change the App Store icons. I cannot seem to find the icon, ie I found the Skype app, but cannot find icon. It's not displayed as "icon@2x" as the Apple native icons. Any ideas. I know John probably had an answer for me.

Thank you,

There are several ways to do it. You can use the bundles method (easier) and create a folder within your theme with the app information and icon or you can change the icon in the Skype app folder itself. You can use SBSettings to find the app location. SBSettings > More > App Folders and then search for the app icon. They aren't always named icon@2x.png and they are case sensitive. It looks like the Skype app icon is named ApplicationIcon_57x57@2x.png.

That's weird... Apple must have changed the naming convention of one of those masked images because the theme used to apply to the App Store apps as well as those installed on your device. I know mine did.

I tried changing the Skype icon, renamed it ApplicationIcon_57x57@2x.png and still would not change. It may be my original issue with some of my App Store Icons being perfect squares. I tried removing everything from Winterboard (as John suggested that it might be WB issue), rebooted, but still have the same issue. Would you have any idea why these icons look so damn "perfect"?

No solution yet, but I'm looking into this too... it's interesting trying to figure out what the common denominator is on which ones are perfectly square and which ones still have the slightly rounded edges. I've removed all themes from Winterboard and still there are some that are perfectly square.

Sorry to bring this issue up again, but I think I figured out what might be causing icons to turn into perfect squares. I ran redsn0w a couple of days ago, and once I updated to 4.3.1 my icons became "normal" once again (with round edges). However, once I removed the shadows behind the icons (by deleting the following: AppIconMask.png, AppIconOverlay.png and AppIconShadow.png), my icons turn into the same old perfect squares. Anyone know how remove the shadows without having the icons turn into the squares.

Thanks again.
